1. What is the status of my grant?
This depends on the grant cycle. Field of Interest Grants are approved monthly; therefore, you should know the status of your request within a month of submission. Community Service Grants are more intensive in process. Time from submission to approval/denial is generally 3 to 4 months.
2. We have never needed to ask for a grant — can you tell me what is available?
There are five types of grants available at the Community Foundation: Community Service Grants, Karl Peterson/Lynn Foundation Grants, McLaughlin Family Fund Grants, Falconer Region Community Fund, and Field of Interest Grants. You can learn more about these grants by visiting www.chautauquagrants.org.
